Today, April 19, 2021, Disney announced via the Disney Parks Blog that they will be transitioning to new plastic-free packaging. This announcement comes out as part of Disney’s Earth Month celebration and rightfully so.
New Plastic-Free Packaging Announcement from Disney
“Just in time for Earth Day, we are announcing that starting today, our line of classic dolls will come in new plastic-free packaging available on shopDisney.com, Walt Disney World Resort, and Disney stores in North America, and coming soon to Disneyland Resort. The plastic-free packaging is made of sustainably sourced paper that is 100% recyclable, and it’s easy to open, too!”
The Disney Classic collection includes 15 classic characters such as Queens Anna and Elsa, Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Moana, Tiana and more! The new packaging can be recycled curbside or reused, while providing you and your families the opportunity to utilize the box as a prop at playtime or for storage any time!
Now available on shopDisney.com and at select Disney Stores and Disney Parks. This plastic-free packaging will become available at global locations later this year.
This a great step for the environment while making it easier for us parents to open. Im not sure if you’ve tried opening children’s toys in the last decade, but man can they be difficult. Additionally, this will further enhance children’s playtime experience.
What do you think about the new packaging? Let us know in the comments below.
